That not only sets a new record, but also beat an equally remarkable series of events this year, including the first attack that killed Osama Bin Laden.

The announcement by President Obama that we have Osama bin Laden was a little over 5,000 tweets per second, recorded the World Cup final in over 2,000 more tweets per second. Reports Trendistic the hashtag # a worldcupfinal was responsible for 0076 percent of all tweets in the world for Sunday, July 17 at this point in time.

That is nearly 10 percent of the world tweets on Twitter. Does not take into account the hashtags and terms related to the World Cup match.

You may not agree to say in the 2011 Women’s World Cup final was more than a day tweeted about the event in history.

Is Sunday a key Twitter Day?

Just thinking about this. It seems that many of the top Twitter incident occurred on Sunday. I wonder if that’s also because Sunday is a non-business day, where people are less likely to be away from home.
